  1. Why do these lessons select against masculinity? Many GAs express pro women sentiment and their teachings could be reasonably included from a feminist lens.
    The erasure of masculine pronouns is an aggression that serves no purpose, especially as it modifies the actual words of a female speaker. Do you presume her intent or assume her ignorance when you censor Susan Porter to fit your messaging?

    • Question 1. I have no idea what you mean by “select against masculinity.” Our lesson plans do not do that, and really, could not do that, given that most of the scriptural texts we are quoting from disproportionately discuss male characters more often than female. We do make an effort to bring in female perspectives and quotes from women to make the lesson plans more relatable to modern females than the original text, which often excludes female perspectives altogether.

      Question 2. I do not see any place where male pronouns are erased in these lesson plans, but some where a female pronoun is added in brackets or brackets are used to indicate substitution of a gender neutral pronoun. This is a common practice by GAs in conference talks and by considerate people generally who wish to indicate to female readers that the text is relevant to them, and not only to males.
